Its not always, as an Illustrator, that you are asked to only illustrate really creative and artistic things….. Sometimes you may get asked to do a technical drawing. As primarily a fashion designer, I sometimes get asked to do technical garment illustrations.
This project however was a bit different. This one was for LA based company Bombshell Sportswear. They needed illustrations for their website, that show how the clothes are put on and worn, and how jewelry pieces are removed from the garments.
I was supplied with pictorial reference pictures to draw from. This always really helps if you can get as good a reference picture as possible. Then I did pencil sketches first. After that I scanned the pencil sketches into Illustrator and drew in clean black lines around the pencil sketch. I then imported the file into Photoshop and coloured it up on Photoshop.
It was quite an interesting project to do for a change, as we can’t always only do very creative projects all the time ! This kind of stuff is like bread and butter work to an Illustrator. I hope you enjoyed reading this, until next time !
